Zero Waste Day at NSM means we will take steps to minimize the amount of material headed for the landfill. The main sources of waste are from hand drying with paper towels, snacks, and lunch.

We encourage students to bring hand towels that can stay in work bins or hooks to dry hands with throughout the day, and to send in only reusable materials and containers for snack and lunch.

We will also minimize the disposal of school materials and send what we can to the composting bin.

We will measure the success of this project by weighing the amount of waste that accumulates on a normal day and compare it to the weight of waste that is generated on Earth Day.
